Chairmans Night 2012

Posted on Updated on

To celebrate Rob Murdy’s year as chairman members of L.E.R.T treated him to his very own Little Britain experience. He was quite surprised at being cast as Andy as the smart money was on a Captain Manning Outfit. Dad’s army aside he arrived in great style from a stretched pink limousine, thanks go to Darren Hickling for arranging the chairman’s taxi . After a few drinks around Long Eaton we departed for the next location where a challenge awaited.

L.E.R.T members were then set the task to try and eat the amazing Flaming Burger Challenge at the Blue Bell in Attenborough. A flaming feast not for the faint hearted!

Flaming Challenge burger

The Flaming Challenge Burger is packed with:

  • Two flame-grilled 12oz beef burgers
  • Two breaded chicken fillets
  • Spicy chilli beef
  • Melted Cheddar cheese
  • Onions
  • Crispy bacon
  • Onion rings
  • And served with a giant helping of chips!

7 members of Long Eaton Round Table attempted the mighty 1kg challenge. But only two emerged Victorious, Steve ” The Bus ” Key and Dr Adam Connor.( Its always the skinny ones that can put it away )

They cleared there plate and got onto the Hall of Flame, complete with a ” I beat the Burger certificate ” I have been told on good authority that Steve was the only one who had a desert as well, tremendous. A fantastic ending for Rob’s year in the Chair.

Whiskey Tasting

Posted on Updated on

Past chairman Mark Loydall kindly offered his services to discuss various different whiskeys on this LERT whiskey tasting night. The evening started with a few different bottles of single malt being sampled, we were told about their origins in Scotland and learnt about the different distilleries in the region. About 12 different whiskeys later things were getting a bit messy, we had all been doped into drinking whiskey made from maize oil and Nigel Glenister brought a whiskey so smokey it was like drinking a bonfire. All this on an empty stomach as well. All done in True tabling style. Cheers to long eaton sea scouts for letting us use their blue Auf wiedersehen hut. Bring on the chips !
